Guillaumania!

Read all about it! The controversial remarks from former a former Hab great! What it's like to be the team's certain saviour! His rumoured romantic links to Jennifer Aniston! His secret feud with his estranged evil twin brother! His thoughts on Montreal media sensationalism!

Spector's most recent Soapbox gives up a peek at how Canada's provincial teams might stack up.

Wait a minute... where is New Brunswick? Led by the marginal Randy Jones and youthful Luc Bourdon and cheered on by Luc Bourdon, now of the Moncton Wildcats, Team NB could probably keep the score close when playing Dustin Penner's Team Manitoba.

How many concussions will Raffi Torres dish out before someone takes away his shoulder pads?

The guy is a bodychecking idiot savant. Check out his anticipation in the video of his hit on Jason Williams (courtesy of Off Wing). A goal scorer has an instinct for when and where the open ice and puck will converge. Torres has a knack for being at top speed at precisely the right time and place for a convergence of his shoulder and the puck carrier's noggin. As a kid, he must have been lethal in a bumper car.

I would be behind giving Raffi foam pads. He looked like he'd just taken out his own brother, by his expression. Gator should've given him a pep talk or something. Or maybe Joey Moss should've given him a hug, I dunno.

Someone will get killed by those hard plastic pads before all's said and done. I'm sure of it.

Doesn't that hit look like the definition of charging?
